"Many men experience guilt about their role in the mistreatment of others, resentment about being overburdened, and profound alienation from themselves and the world in which they live as a result of patriarchal socialization. In this much needed book, Stephen Boyd exposes the detrimental implications of society's demands and definition of men." "The Men We Long To Be offers an alternative identity for men and challenges them to transform their ways of being. It explores issues of alienation, guilt, and societal roles, and helps men identify their true feelings and need for change." "Boyd's call for a new understanding of manhood is rooted in a renewed spirituality that recovers the best of Christian teaching."--BOOK JACKET.

Finally, a book for the thousands of mainstream Protestant and Catholic men now active in what Newsweek recently called "the burgeoning Christian men's movement". This book examines how traditional Church beliefs and expectations have fostered an unrealistic and unhealthy standard of masculinity, burdening men with guilt, shame, and confusion, and contaminating their relationship with women and each other.
